AbstractThe influence of diameter of rigid hemispherical-headed punches on a circular disk shaped miniature specimen of medium carbon steel has been investigated, in the small punch test. A 3-D finite-element model carried out the computation of the elastic-plastic solution ofdifferent hemispherical rigid punches. The three hemispherical-headed punches were designed and developed to conduct the miniature test. The small. punch test"was conducted on a circular shaped disk (l0.0 mm diameter, 0.5 mm thick), clamped around the periphery and deformed by central load applied by rigid hemispherical indenter. The ABAQUS finite-element software has been used to determine the load vs punch-displacement curves, von-Mises stresses, equivalent plastic strain, contact pressure, logarithmic stresses, load-till failure and full-field displacement in the model have been computed. The finite-element model was validated by comparing with the experimental data for load vs displacement curves. The effect of punch diameter on load vs displacement was observed experimentally as well as by finite-element method. The computational results compared reasonably well with the experimental results.
